The parts sitting around here in boxes would seem to indicate that this is indeed the case.

Hopefully all goes well and you don't end up with too many *extra* parts...

What I'll end up with is a second, lower end, working computer that I have no use for.

Which is not so bad, I was thinking of taking it to work and using it there - where it would still be miles ahead of what I've got in my office - or selling it to the computer shop down the road. Their ad says if you have a working PC that shipped with XP on it, they'll buy it. The ad was a bit old but I was in there poking around their used parts yesterday and they were in the process of selling an XP rig to somebody, so...

Also they had quite a selection of used components and cables and just about everything you can think of - nothing I wanted right now, unfortunately, but a lot of stuff I thought was too obsolete to be of interest to anyone. Which means I may be able to go through my growing collection of leftover bits and pieces of old rigs and make a couple bucks off of them. Plus there's stuff at work that my boss keeps asking me if I want, maybe I should start saying "yes" to that question.

Boy does that ever bring back memories... I used to do desktop technical support in a large call centre and they had us sorting out XP issues on rigs that were running Windows 2000.

Friggin' OS was so unstable it would periodically crash whenever you opened more than 3 or 4 windows, so you had to do the two-step phone ad lib while the system rebooted.

Getting back on topic though, I've got so many pieces of old rigs kicking about that I've pretty much lost track of them all. Still that doesn't deter me from collecting more , so if it was my boss offering extra parts, I'd definitely take him (or her) up on it.

I keep telling myself, you never know when you might need it, and come to think of it I can actually recall an after hours HDD crash when I was able to swap out an old one and get back up and running even though the stores were all closed.

Flimsy justification though that might be, it's good enough for me to justify my ever growing collection of largely obsolete parts. Then again if anyone ever needs a Pentium 1 with an amazing 40 GB hard drive I can always hook 'em up!

You need to read the PC thread.

Don't knock Win2000, I still look back on it fondly as a huge step up from the Win95 rigs we started out on.

Actually I started out on DOS then Windows 3.1 then '95...

While it's true each incarnation seemed like a huge step up, they were all very early in the era of the home PC. Kind of like going from Jurrasic to Cretaceous, a noticeable improvement but still very primitive.

Hey Frau Kaleun and Fish In The water....
All this talk about DOS, Win 3.1 and 95 - you are giving your ages away .
Remember the old customised floppy boot disk to get your software running
....and how smart programmers were then to fit games onto a handfull of floppies
...ah those were the days....
